In this 70-video, intermediate training, CBT Nuggets trainer Keith Barker covers the knowledge security technicians need to recognize, compare, and contrast different types of cybersecurity vulnerabilities and threats and indicators associated with network attacks.
Whether you’re on your way to earning your CompTIA Security+ certification, working toward a different cybersecurity cert, or just trying to expand your knowledge of digital network security, this training represents a crucial first step in your journey.
